Dr Michelle Morris
This course offers an introduction to spatial analytics in a public health context. The course will begin with an overview of different spatial units and how they fit together. Public health examples will be used to illustrate the relevance of using each of these units. We will work through examples of how spatial units can be added into existing datasets. In the afternoon we will generate your first map using public health data.
– To understand common spatial units in the UK
– To use open resources to match data at different spatial scales
– To generate a map of public health data (in a licenced and open source software)
Is this course for me
This course is for researchers who want to start looking at spatial or social variations in their data and generating maps to present results. The course will assume that your knowledge of spatial scales and generation of maps is zero. Examples will all be from a public health context.
